Laura's First Post

"Nikki started off the tour through Miami Valley by visiting Yellow Springs, Ohio. I decided to finally stop and get a shot of this sign on Dayton Road, and much to my delight, discovered that it's made of ceramic tiles, fired in town somewhere. Nikki is sitting on the G. Shot with the V1 and 50mm f/1.2

Closeup of one of the tile pieces that caught my eye.


Next stop was the local NPR station, WYSO, which just moved to new facilities this summer, a large improvement over the basement in the other building. You can check out their broadcast by streaming them through, plenty of
variety there.
I was going to look for more of the tile installations that I was told about, but instead wound up in Glen Helen and walked around. Saw this leaf standing up in the rain spout

And a few steps to the right changed the lighting completely

 Some leaves on the ground

And some still on trees                             

A dry creek bed full of leaves

And berries for the birds

A fallen tree still providing homes and food
The hula hoop caught my eye

 I heard the sound of a waterfall, and started my descent to find it. Came across this bridge
There are some steps at the end to go down. Then came across this fallen log and see that the food chain continues on

And finally, the waterfall I was hearing was just a little tiny one that had a good echo chamber behind it :) V1 @ 1.8
 D700 @ f/11
Turned around to go home and took this of the creek the waterfall empties in to.
 Passed by the log again
 More berries for birds
 Stopped for a pose, D700 and 50mm f/1.2

 And the wavy bridge I had to recross.

As soon as Nikki gets back from emergency surgery, currently scheduled on Tuesday, I'll head out and shoot some more. Unless otherwise noted, all shots are from the Nikon 1 V1 camera with FT1 attachment at f/1.8 and ISO 100."
